Deadline for removing unpicked fruit

27 June 2019

Growers are reminded that unpicked kiwifruit must be removed from vines by 1 July.

Unpicked fruit can increase the amount of wild kiwifruit plants establishing in nearby areas of native bush or forestry. Unmanaged vines (including those with unpicked fruit) may also be a potential host for plant disease organisms.

After 1 July KVH will follow-up on reports of unpicked fruit with orchard owners and post-harvest companies. Read more here.
